Kirk Herbstreit Thinks Michigan "Too Much Of A Powerhouse" To Run Satellite Camps

Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh is seemingly in the news every day at this point, and one of the more common topics deals with his program's emphasis on satellite camps. It looks like not everyone in the sport agrees with Harbaugh's tactics on the recruiting trail.

ESPN's Kirk Herbstreit joined Doug Gottlieb on his radio show this past Friday and dropped a few interesting quotes, saying that Michigan is too much of a "powerhouse brand" to need to rely on satellite camps in the South and West. He said that he's "tired" of hearing about satellite camps - and he doesn't think they're making much of a difference.

Tuesday, Herbstreit went at it with a few fans on Twitter, clarifying his stance. He thinks Michigan is too proud a program to need to do it.

Only time will tell if Harbaugh's recruiting tactics pay off. But he's certainly shaken things up in his short time in Ann Arbor.
